Megan Kennedy


I've been writing fiction for most of my life. My past work can be found in publications such as Phantom Kangaroo, Luna Station Quarterly, Dinosaur Bees, Tales of the Zombie War, and the anthology Under The Stairs edited by Lisa Keele. I've self-published an ultraviolent zombie novella, Bury Me In Smoke, as well as two short horror stories Pages and The Waste, and poetry collection Hymns of the Dark Tower. My academic papers are published, award-winning and have been presented at conferences. I spent 5+ years on staff at SLUG Magazine as a music and culture journalist, producing hundreds of interviews, reviews, profiles, and contributing to podcasts. I worked for almost 2 years as a romance novel ghostwriter, and had several of these books crack the top 10 Amazon Kindle list. I am a heavy Twitter user (@sixmoments), writing about religion, history, writing as a craft, feminism, living with PTSD, and other topics. My current WIP is a dark fantasy/noir project set in my own version of Hell. I have over 20 years of experience with writing and editing in all sorts of formats.
